Bocote’, Mopani, & Tagua Pen

Starting at the point, the Zaner-Bloser style flare is Tagua, sometimes called vegetable ivory for its similarity to animal ivory in color, texture and workability; Mopani, here predominantly the fine grained sapwood with a narrow band of heartwood on the reverse side; Bocote’ showing its distinct grain above and below the center band; and Mopani sapwood again at the clip end. The picture of the blank on the mandrel shows how this started out. The design change gives it much more character.
